In response to the damaging floods that took place in the Bayou-Lafayette region of Louisiana and other recent catastrophes that have devastated several areas of the United States, Legrand North America, a global specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructures, has set up a relief fund through the Red Cross for its natural disaster relief efforts. These donations will help provide food, shelter, and comfort to those impacted by major storms, fires, and other natural disasters that occur across the nation.
Over the next 90 days, Legrand employees are encouraged to make donations to the Red Cross, and the company will match employee contributions up to a total of $100,000, with a minimum corporate donation of $50,000.
“We recognize the importance of companies like ours to help provide significant assistance to the people and regions affected by such devastating events,” said, Alessandra Adnani, data quality manager and Legrand Better Communities Committee Leader. “Our employees share a sense of responsibility to come together and assist the Red Cross in helping all communities recover and rebuild as quickly as possible.”
The Red Cross responds to more than 60,000 disasters per year—including single-family and apartment home residents, and citywide crisis. One of their most recent relief operations launched in Louisiana, is anticipated to cost at least $30 million.
